my first commissioned piece.

i am so pleased to share with you a special ojo de dios that i was asked to make for the new jac and jack store in melbourne, australia (joanna and justina- you will love their beach towels).  i am still waiting on images of it up in its place in the shop, but have these that i took at home when it just finished. what do you think?!

happy birthday my love.

my days are busy, busy, busy until christmas. last night, while making spaghetti sauce and doing the dishes, i also attempted to bake a chocolate yogurt cake from scratch. i forgot too add boiling water and the middle fell in. :::devastating::: it still smells delicious! i have to find an hour after work today to try again because he's worth it!

happy birthday my main man, you rock my boat (i mean that in a good way). xoxo

winter is a feeling.

sydneysiders are getting stoked on the early signs of summer down under, for me i've already missed the leaves turning into fall. now i'm ready for winter. must be engrained in my make-up to crave the change of seasons.

tokyo time.

i am un petit peu obsessed with the idea of living in tokyo...not so much in a way that i am devising a plan on how to make it happen, but i do daydream about it a lot and frequent hello sandwich's blog for delicious peaks at tokyo life (with subsequent pangs of envy). the season is changing over there right now (when i went japan, it was november and such a perfect time to visit)...thinking of this has just brought back some of the most vivid memories for me of being there coming into the holiday season and reminded me that japan has got to be the best place in the world to buy a new calendar for the coming year. the best store ever in tokyo (second only to Loft) is Tokyu Hands and that is where i stumbled upon the cutest little calendar i have ever owned and a plethora of other goodies. i managed to find a couple photos of it back in its glory days (2011 ;).

today's special.

it's my birthday today (in australia at least, not technically in canada. gets a bit confusing with the time differences)...and a milestone one at that. i feel quite positive about this birthday and coming year...the actual number of years i've been alive is seemingly propelling me forwards. there are less 'same old' things in my life that i will stand for and so many more wonderfuls that i feel more confident about. it's hard to explain, but i feel like this is a good thing. i've already had an amazing year thus far. in some ways i feel like this is the year that people started treating me as an adult. i'm quite small in stature and look pretty young (i think/hope), so i often don't get treated as equally as a i should in certain situations. that has changed this year and it may have to do with the odd new crinkle under my eyes...but i like to think that it has a lot to do with me and how much i've learned and that i am now applying to my life. i feel confident and excited and a little bit nervous (which is always a good thing). happy birthday to me!  thank you to all who have been a part of my life- big, medium or small- and for all you may have shared. it doesn't take a lot for me to feel touched by or to learn from someone else. the biggest thank you to my family; i have always said that if all i had was my immediate and extended family in my life, i would never even need one friend. especially to you- momma, gray and madelaine- i am who i am because of your love and support and from learning from what you do. i love you and miss you so much!!

can you spot me?
